Hypnotherapy depression in Newcastle can help you turn around and drop many of the psychological aspects of depression that are ruining your life at the moment.
When you are really depressed, the normal things in life, people take for granted are not very easy at all. If you are feeling depressed, even reading this can be a bit of a task. The invitation even now is to keep reading, just for a bit.
Approximately 20% of people will at some time in their life suffer from a clinical depression. And what is very interesting is 20% of people with depressive symptoms will have this caused by an under active thyroid gland that is something your doctor should check.
Depression in the most common terms is about loss. This can be loss of a loved one, loss of a job or loss of the personality or identity you have related to for a very long time. Hypnotherapy Newcastle can help.
Depression in a clinical or medical sense is generally divided into to kinds. This will not fit everyone because you are unique so this is just a categorical term yet at the same time you may relate to this.
Number one : Reactive Depression
This means you have experienced a loss and you are feeling down, lost, guilty or grieving. Chances are, real good chance, you will get over this on you own,likely with the help of good support form your friends. This is perfectly normal.
You can probably rate where you are on the Kubler-Ross scale. It goes something like this, easily remembered by the acronym D.A.B.D.A. that any counsellor will recognise as part of their very basic training.
- D – Denial
- A – Anger
- B – Bargaining
- D- Depression
- A – Acceptance
Hypnotherapy Newcastle can best help you after you have grieved properly and are are experiencing the latter two stages. And your Doctor could prescribe SSRI’s to help you. Prosac and the many brand names of the same drug show that reactive depression can be assuaged with this drug.
My preference is not to use drugs to help you come to terms with loss and I also respect a drug based approach that you can work out with your pharmacologist.
Number Two : Clinical Depression
This is the real bad end of the stick. And you know it! However chances are within a few months you will be out the other end and living and experiencing life with all the joy and enthusiasm you used to have.
Clinical Depression, what a term! will be the symptomatology that you have felt ‘depressed’ for over two weeks and its not getting any better.
The major symptom of a major clinical depression is the complete loss of pleasure in life. This is termed anhedonia. Other symptomatology may be psycho-motor retardation, a lack of get up and go. Depressed people will most likely have very disturbed sleeping patterns too.
There are thought to be at least three neurotransmitters involved in clinical depression. These are Seratonin ( 5HT ), Dopamine and Noradrenalin. The parts these play are complicated though can be summarised as these:
- Serotonin – Sad Thoughts
- Noradrenalin – Lack Of Energy
- Dopamine – Loss Of Pleasure
There are plenty of drugs that work on and in the respective neurotransmitter pathways and synaptic transmission. Clinical hypnotherapy in Newcastle offers a way to help you that can be complementary to drugs or drug free.
Clinical Depression is very much a regarded to be a severe imbalance in the neuro-chemistry in the brain and as such is as real a disease as diabetes. Depression is completely felt in the now and usually accompanied with intense feeeling of grief, guilt and remorse.
Clinical hypnotherapy for depression is both about becoming future positive orientated and moping up unresolved issues from the past that are potentially causing grief. It will also focus in the very likely internal self talk that is very probably very negative and compounds the situation.
